Jung’s novel has gotten an incredibly warm critical reception. Not surprisingly, it took years to write, the gestation was arduous, the psycho-spiritual agony along the way was often intense. This, I’m finding, is what’s called “the creative process.” This is what I’m learning as I do this show and have these conversations. This particular conversation I remember fondly for a variety of reasons, not least of which being that Jung is a first-generation Korean American from Fargo, North Dakota whose father is a world-renowned martial arts instructor. We had fun.

In today’s monologue, I read some tweets from my @BradListi Twitter account. Lucky you.
